Visit one of the clearest, most beautiful, wild mountain river in Montenegro – known for its purity as the ’Tear of Europe’. The Tara’s source at the foot of the Komovi moutains (1,250m) moves northeastward to emerge through the canyon at Scepan Polje (433m) meeting with the Piva River to form the Drina, one of the longest rivers of southeastern Europe.
The Tara River Canyon is up to 1,330m deep, making it the deepest canyon in Europe and second deepest in the world after Colorado. For the most part, it is located in Durmitor National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980, as a geological, hydrological and biological phenomenon.
Tara is also Europe’s last remaining unpolluted river, allowing adventurers to drink from it freely as they descend its rapids. Some of the most spectacular experiences of the canyon include sunrise with the sunshine breaking through the cracks in the rugged, rocky landscape, and narrow snippets of starry sky to be observed from below by campers.
205 € per person
A two-day rafting experience along the Tara River takes you through the centre of the Durmitor National Park. The 76km long route begins at Drugi Logor finishing up at Scepan Polje. The day includes lunch and entry to the National Park, as well as transfers to and from the starting point(s).
We spend the night in authentic wooden bungalows, to break up our rafting adventure. Participants are catered with three meals per-day, fuelling up for swimming in the plunge pools and battling through the rapids!
Each raft is accompanied by a licensed guide to navigate and coach participants. All necessary rafting and safety equipment is provided by us including sterilized neoprene wetsuits and boots, a safety helmet and life vest.
